March 30: COVID Tracker <= UPDATE

March 30, 2020

As I indicated on this morning’s update, the Daily Death statistics seemed to be too good to be true. Apparently, some states were later than usual reporting.  The GOOD NEWS: Daily New Deaths did drop in NY and ROC (Rest of the Country). One day doesn’t make a trend, but it’s a nice number to report.

Virginia Dems: “Hoisted by their own petards”

February 7, 2019

And, some predictions re: the likely outcome.

First, a translation of the classic phrase…

Contrary to common misunderstanding, the phrase does not mean getting lifted by one’s underwear … wedgie and all.

Rather, a ”petard” was an ancient bomb-like device used to blow open walls or gates.


So, to be “hoisted by one’s own petard” is to be injured by the device that you intended to use to injure others.

Got it?


OK, so how have Virginia Democrats hoisted themselves by their own petards?
